Abstract

Voting is an action considered to be fundamental in a democratic setting. E-voting can be referred to as an election that involves using an electronic device for the purpose of casting votes. Lack of transparency and other problems associated with semi-manual method of casting vote in Nigeria has indeed called for a more robust electronic voting system. In this paper, a model for evaluating e-voting system using fuzzy logic approach is proposed. The model was simulated and tested for students' union election using a Federal University in Nigeria. Opinions of the students regarding the proposed model were randomly sampled and analyzed for the purpose of evaluation especially when compared with the existing system of voting. Furthermore, factors that can guarantee free and fair election were discussed and put into consideration during the development of the model. The result shows that the proposed model was effective, efficient and reliable for implementing electronic voting system.
